Axed: One Dollar

One of the three original titles available on 10 All Access, has been axed by CBS.

Well this is awkward.

One Dollar, one of the three original titles available on 10 All Access, has been axed by CBS after just one season.

But that’s television.

The series is set in a small rust belt town in post-recession America, where a one-dollar bill changing hands connects a group of characters involved in a shocking multiple murder. It stars John Carroll Lynch, Nathaniel Martello-White, Christopher Denham, Philip Ettinger, Kirrilee Berger, Gracie Lawrence, Joshua Bitton, Nike Uche Kadri, and Hamilton Clancy.

“While One Dollar won’t be coming back for another season, we’re incredibly proud of its artistically presented 10-episode story, which will continue to be available for streaming on the service and for future audiences to discover,” said Julie McNamara, EVP of original content for CBS All Access. “We thank the tremendous creative team, Craig Zobel, Matt DeRoss, Alexandre Dauman, Graham Gordy and Jason Mosberg, and the wonderful cast for their hard work and dedication to this series, as well as our viewers for following One Dollar’s journey.”

At least it will remain in its entirety on 10 All Access for viewers keen to check it out.

At a pricy $9.99 Tell Me a Story and Strange Angel are now the only 2 original titles on the service which survive until expected titles such as the Jean-Luc Picard Star Trek and The Twilight Zone land.

If only it had launched at one dollar?

      1. You seriously have to ask?

        You have a network that launches an extremely uncompetitive and unimpressive streaming service with just three originals, a mere 10 days before its parent company kills one of them and reduces it to two, and has the gall to charge full price for it. For a whopping total of 26 original content episodes.

        Stan are an extremely minor player compared to CBS but their Disney deal alone far eclipses All Access, let alone everything else on that service.

        Amazon knew full well that Prime Video was not where it needed to be in Australia at launch, and charged a reduced $2.99 for the first six months to at least get content like The Grand Tour out the door. And at least that offered 4K from day 1.

        Add to that the entire 10 Boss -> 10 Bold rebrand fiasco where they can’t even do a simple trademark search, and the fact that they are getting absolutely thumped…
